Pamperin Park Summer Wedding: Olivia + Laura Say I Do!
On a beautifully sunny summer day, Olivia and Laura’s closest family and friends gathered at Pamperin Park to witness them say I do. Olivia and Laura prepped at the Comfort Inn & Suites in Green Bay just two rooms down from each other. Their wedding day was adventure-themed, empathizing their excitement to be on this journey of life together. In celebration of that theme, Olivia’s mom gifted Olivia a dagger (how cool!) that she wore in her garter on her thigh, bringing a slight pirate theme to the day. The temptation to see each other before their first look ran high. We even had to smuggle Olivia out of the building so Laura wouldn’t run over to see her; she was incredibly excited to see her wife-to-be!
Once at Pamperin Park, Olivia and Laura shared a first look, where they had time to spend, just the two of them, before the ceremony. Excitement and giddy butterflies fluttered from each of them, as they said how beautiful and wonderful the other looked and that they love each other so much. As we wandered the park, we tried to keep Olivia and Laura in the shade as best we could during the warm day. Walking hand and hand to the ceremony location in the park, the lighting was absolutely gorgeous, and so was their love and joy for one another.
They gathered for the ceremony with both of their dads walking Olivia and Laura down the aisle at the same time. Laura’s brother brought such a personal touch officiating, sparking vitality, personality, and energy during the ceremony. Olivia and Laura happily and tearfully shared their hand written wedding vows, filled with sweet words of love and joy. While their ceremony was unfolding, their wedding party and immediate family conducted a ring warming ceremony, passing the lady’s rings from person to person, warming it with their hands, and saying a wish or a prayer over the rings. Before Olivia knew it, they were pronounced married and shared a joyous first kiss!
The delicious smell of authentic tacos from a local family filled Pamperin Park for Olivia and Laura’s reception, highlighting Laura’s heritage. A mix of Hispanic and American music had everyone springing to their feet to dance! Their families were warm, welcoming, and so celebratory. It was such a heartwarming and beautiful sight to see how easily they came together to celebrate these two amazing women.
Olivia and Laura, you two are such strong, loving, and compassionate partners. We know you have a lifetime of love and adventure ahead of you. Here’s to wishing you a future of happiness, friendship, and exploration.
Much love and appreciation,
